Staff very friendly and helpful. About 15 min walk to some nice tourist spots like Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shinjuku garden and Meiji Shrine Capsules were comfortable to sleep in (though if tall >1.85m may be an issue) - good sound isolation but not much else, disappointed by lack of electricity inside capsules and extremely dim lighting, and how out of the...

This is the perfect Japanese hostel. It's centered around college-aged travelers. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They speak great English and have a good knowledge of the train system in Japan. The capsule beds are cozy, but plenty big. I was afraid I would be claustrophobic but that was not the case at all. I felt very safe... More

Great hostel which is so close to the Subway and everything Tokyo has to offer. Helpful desk staff and clean facilities. Showers are down in the basement but that's not an issue. Would recommend to other travellers.

The staff are beyond excellent. Booking everything for you if you need. English speaking is good. Good capsules, mattress is very thin but for the price and location you can forgive it. Free showers and towels with great wifi too. Located right next to akebonobashi subway stop and just a few minutes from Shinjuku.

Never imagined that I will gonna like capsules that much! But it was a great experience, especially considering that I am 194 cm (6'4) tall. Capsules in Ace Inn Shinjuku were spacious enough even for me! The best thing about them is that you have a privacy (in comparison to usual bunk beds). Geographically the hostel was in a quite...

What an absolute hovel. Disgusting doesn't cut it. Everything is filthy. Toilet absolutely reeks of urine. Lovely sign over the sink "don't puke in the sink - use the toilet" says it all. Carpet is so filthy it's unbelievable. Sleep on a park bench if you can. It'll be cheaper, more comfortable and cleaner. What a hole.

Room - My brother and I stayed in a mixed room. The capsules had a light and sufficient space for a girl who is 5'4". My brother who is 5'11'' had enough room as well. Some said the mattresses were too hard, but I personally didn't mind it because I'm okay with firm beds. There's just a curtain for privacy... More

It's a "capsule" hotel, has some nice heated toilets (yes, Japan), is near Akebonobashi metro station / near Shinjuku ... Has some stores nearby if you want to snack on the cheap, but not too far from some decent foods if that's your thing. I think it's good for salarymen or students traveling on a budget. Oh, they had WiFi... More

The beds are very big once you get inside and the curtain gives good privacy. The lockers are very narrow so you can only really fit valuables in there, luggage just needs to find a space outside. It's not the most secure luggage store (under the stairs) but mine was still there when I went back! Showers are good, you... More

My friends and I stayed here for a couple of nights in a mixed dorm. Location was fairly convenient, near a Metro station with quick access to the city centre (a couple of stops), with a few small stores and restaurants dotted about. The dorm room was nice, if a bit shabby and lacking in cleanliness (compared to the high... More

Staying in Yotsuya / Iidabashi

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
